Connecting the Baltic Area

The Swedish Postal System in the Seventeenth Century

Omslag för Connecting the Baltic Area: The Swedish Postal System in the Seventeenth Century

Droste, Heiko (red.)

The establishment in Europe of a postal service revolutionized seventeenth century communications as well as the media landscape. Throughout most of Europe news, which rose sharply in volume, now traveled expeditiously. The comparative ease by which word could be sent helped new social and economic relationships flourish, intensifying the process of state-building. The consequences of this transformation for both postal workers and consumers alike permeate the work contained.

The Post’s historical role must be considered in the context of European society at large. Focus should move away from its organization and development as an institution in isolation. That is the perspective shared by contributors to this anthology.
